Microwave communications equipment designed specifically for the university and related simulation software was donated by the infocommunications authority to the Military Science and Officer Training Faculty of the University of Public Service (NKE). The purpose of the equipment is to enable the students of the university to demonstrate and practise the management and elimination of communication interference, noise and transmission errors caused by terrain obstacles during training and exercises. In addition to the President of the NMHH, András Koltay, the Rector of the National University of Public Service, and the heads of the NMHH and the Faculty of Military Science and Officer Training attended the handover ceremony of the laboratory, which has a total value of HUF thirteen million.

“Anyone whose vocation is defence is always prepared for extraordinary situations. This is because in war even a minor transmission error can be fatal. The strength of the laboratory of the NMHH is precisely the fact that it allows for simulation not in a laboratory environment, but in real-life conditions” – said Monika Karas at the official ceremony. The president of the NMHH also stressed that any technology is only as good as our ability to use it. And it is in extraordinary circumstances that this really comes to light. “We only truly possess knowledge which we can use in situations when it is needed” – ended the president her speech and expressed her hopes that the communications laboratory will provide such knowledge for the students.
In his speech, András Koltay, the Rector of NKE said that the comprehensive Military Force Development Programme currently underway is defining in the operation of the university. He expressed his pleasure about the NMHH participating in this process with its own means through the communications laboratory. He highlighted the long-standing cooperation between the NKE and NMHH, which is further strengthened by this event, and shared his hope that this relationship will continue to deepen in the future.

In the educational support programme of the National Media and Infocommunications Authority ongoing since 2012 eleven media workshops and already five electronic communications teaching laboratories were donated to various educational institutions so far. The equipment of each laboratory matches the profile of the institution, but the aim of the authority is the same in all cases: to offer Hungarian students the opportunity to learn about technologies that can compete with that of the best educational institutions in the world.
